Confessions Of A Chocoholic

The cat says "I AM FULL!!!!!"


The school holidays starts tomorrow. Hooray!! One of my students, Annie, gave me a chocolate today and she is going for a holiday in Italy. How I envy her! ..'Thanks Annie, for the chocolate'. Have a wonderful holiday and hope that you will come back with more chocolate...




..coincidentally, my husband came home with my favourite chocolate too. What a chocolate day!!..I am so grateful for the chocolate I got today. My favourite is in the yellow packet. I love the crunchy cornflakes inside it...yummy..








At the moment when I am writing this..I am actually craving for chocolate..Part of me wants to just run downstairs, open the fridge and grab those chocolate but part of me says ' No!! I have to watch out my calorie intake because I keep on gaining weight!!!! I've had too much chocolate for the week. So, here I am ...depriving myself of chocolate...


Well, I have a few questions to ask all of you...

Do you love chocolate?

Do you truly believe that everyday is a better day with chocolate?

Does the mere thought of chocolate make you feel warm and fuzzy inside ?

If your answer to those questions are yes..yes and yes..then you can consider yourself a 'chocoholic' and I am actually one of them...

Why do people love chocolate anyway?
I love chocolate simply because it gives me that 'melt -in -your mouth' feeling every time you pop a piece of chocolate in your mouth. It tastes so good!
It also calms me down..after consuming chocolate I always feel happy and lively...


Just wanna share with you some facts about chocolate (http://ezinearticles.com/) :-

Ever since the time of Aztec people believed that chocolate has 'aphrodisiac' properties......

Dark chocolate especially contains flavonoids and antioxidants that lower risk of cancer and heart disease.

Chocolate also contains chemicals called opioids. Opioids are also found in Opium and they serve to dull pains and give a feeling of well being to people who ingest them.

Chocolate stimulates endorphin production, which gives a feeling of pleasure

Chocolate contains serotonin, which acts as an anti-depressant

Nevertheless, chocolate does contain fats and sugars that you shouldn't’t eat a great deal of it—but as long as you eat it in moderation, the science suggests you can add as much as a year to your life.

To chocolate lovers, enjoy chocolate !
